Spider-Man today received a new DLC suit patterned on Sam Raimi’s trilogy of Spider-Man films, Insomniac Games confirmed. The gift to players has been claimed as a victory for an incredibly vocal minority who relentlessly whinged across social media.
A select few across Twitter and other social media have been demanding the Raimi suit for months now, and have asserted today’s free gift was a last-minute response to the request. Insomniac’s James Stevenson has knocked this idea back, confirming that the suit has been in development for months.
Yup. Today's release was ultimately in the works for MONTHS and started before the base game even released.
But as you note, due to the complexity, we could say absolutely nothing. https://t.co/kYx5jB6HdY

At any rate, maybe the man-babies will quiet down a bit now that they have their way. Enjoy this tweet where level-minded users take a dig at the courageous souls who decided to scream at a publisher until they got their DLC suit.
